The tweak has three main features, which work when the device is in jiggle mode, which is the mode in which the device is placed when you want to move or delete applications. These include:
- Make a new multi-application folder on the home screen
- Move multiple applications from a folder to the home screen
- Delete multiple device applications at once
Make a new multi-application folder on the home screenThe first important feature of tweak is that it allows you to make a new application folder from the home screen. After installing the tweak, you can invoke jiggle mode and hold down any application icon from the home screen, where you can then select as many of your applications as you want. When you do, the tweak will mark your icons with red numbers, which indicate that an application has been selected.
When you select apps, you'll see a black bar that appears at the bottom of the screen, which includes buttons for all the things you can do after selecting apps. Tapping on what looks like a folder will allow you to create a folder of the applications that you have selected.
You will then be prompted to give the folder a name, and when you name and tap the confirm button, the new folder will be created and all the applications you have selected will be placed inside it.
Move multiple applications from a folder to the home screenAnother thing you can do after installing MultiActions is to move several applications from a folder to the home screen. To do this, you must enter jiggle mode and double-click the folder to open it. It is necessary to double-tap because the tweak selects the folder instead of opening something else.
Once you are in the folder, you can start to press lightly on the icons of the apps inside it to select them and then in the black bar, press the icon with the folder and the arrow, that moves the applications out of the folder And on the main home screen.
When you do this, you will get a confirmation message asking if you want to delete the two applications in the folder, and after touching the "Move" button, applications will return to the home screen.
Delete multiple device applications at onceFinally, you can also use this tweak to delete multiple applications at once. After entering jiggle mode, you can tap and select the icons of the apps you want. Once selected, you will once again have the black bar at the bottom of the screen and you can tap the trash button inside the bar. This will show you a message, asking you to confirm that you want to delete the selected applications.
When you click the delete button, all applications will be removed from the device simultaneously.
MultiActions also adds a preference panel in the Settings application that allows you to configure several options.
